Dermaplaning is all the rage these days, and even if you’re not a huge trend follower, you’ve likely heard of it. Dermaplaning is similar in theory to microdermabrasion in that it is a physical form of exfoliation. The procedure entails a cosmetic surgeon or skincare expert using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently shave the top layer of dead skin and fine vellus hair from the skin’s surface. (more…)
As with every other sector, the beauty industry sees its fair share of trends come and go. Some trends are fleeting and last no more than a year or so, while others are just the beginning of a larger movement. In 2020, consumers can expect to see a little bit of both.
Following the spring 2020 runways, one thing became apparent: The 90s are making a comeback. Eyeliner and rhinestones were all over the runways this past fall, with models rocking both on their lids and around their eyes. Though you should feel free (and confident) to be as expressive as you want, you can always tone down the runway look by using stick-on rhinestones to line your cat-eye, playing with glitter eyeshadow around the edges or placing discreet gems in the inner corners of your eyes.

As the seasons change, most people tend to transition several aspects of their lives along with the shift. They change up their wardrobe, switch to lighter makeup and opt for brighter nail colors. They replace thick flannel blankets with light throws and switch out deep greens and reds for soft yellows and lavender. Yet, for all the changes people make, many fail to address one of the most important needs of all: The needs of their skin. (more…)

Under eye bags — or mild swelling or puffiness beneath the eyes — are the bane of most women’s (and some men’s) existence. Though rarely a sign of a serious underlying medical condition, bags beneath the eyes can pose a real cosmetic concern, as they’re difficult, if not impossible, to hide with makeup. If you live with dark circles, loose or sagging skin or puffiness beneath your eyes, you may wonder what causes it and, more importantly, how you can treat it. You’ve come to the right place. (more…)

If you’ve yet to come up with a resolution to which you want to commit, commit to improving your skin’s appearance. (more…)
It is not uncommon for fancy serums, masks, exfoliators and moisturizers to take all the credit for healthy, glowing skin, but it’s really the underdog that deserves all the credit. That’s right — without your facewash, you wouldn’t be able to achieve the clean and open foundation upon which all the other skincare products rely.
According to the co-founder of one innovative new facial cleanser, facewash is more important than most people realize. Though everyone washes their faces at least once a day (The ideal frequency is twice a day.), most people don’t realize the importance of this one basic step. Cleansing the face, according to the specialist, opens up the pores to the point where they’re the most vulnerable. Though this seems like a recipe for disaster, it’s actually the very step that allows the other products — including your moisturizers, serums and masks — to penetrate the skin. In short, washing your face not only cleanses and detoxifies your skin but also, it sets it up to receive all the vital antioxidants, nutrients, enzymes and oils that are in the rest of your products.
So, what should you do with the rest of your products? Don’t ditch them! They can be super effective, so long as they have a pristine canvas on which to work.
In conclusion, cleanser is a truly non-negotiable step in the skincare maintenance process. To simplify your skincare routine and really make the most of it, however, you need a quality cleanser that is jampacked with vitamins, antioxidants, cell-communicating ingredients and fragrance-free plant extracts and oils. Where can. You find such a product? You guessed it!
Hale Cosmeceuticals offers some of the most advanced and effective facial cleanses on the market. If you want to achieve your skincare goals in an all-natural way, check out our innovative cleansers today.
“Glycolic acid.” You may be familiar with the term but not know why. We’ll help you out a bit: It’s one of the most common ingredients found in drugstore and dermatologist-approved skincare products. It’s also the ingredient that put skincare on the map back in the early ‘90s. (more…)
We get it — some of the tastiest foods are also some of the unhealthiest. While we have no qualms about indulging in some sugar-coated strawberries or deliciously greasy French fries, we also know that overindulgence can have negative consequences, one of which is sped-up aging. Before you go smothering your toast in butter or loading up a ballpark hotdog, think twice about how it will affect your body’s natural aging process, and consider swapping it out with an alternative instead.
